    That`s a lot of pain, I`ve heard of this before. Shows how certain cultures can handle pain etc. better than others, because they do things like this, without modern doctors to help them if they need it, too.

    Since when does IAB advertise for porn? Or is that just a misleading ad about Elizabeth Banks getting double teamed

    bullet ant stings have been compared to being shot with a bullet, hence the name. Hundreds of these crawling all over your body and all or most of them stinging you would definitely be painful. i would not call him a crybaby

    if he is doing the manhood ritual from the southern south america countries then he should know its normally one ant and you get stung 5 times without screaming to pass....

    thing is that is supposed to be the most painful sting in the world and it lasts for like 24 hours of pain lol.

    The natives do it for many hours. Strange how the non-native cannot take it. I have read many books detailing how many indian or tribal people have a much higher threshhold of pain.

    Honestly, I have respect for this man. The video didn`t lie, bullet ants are one of the most feared things in the southern americas. The fact that he was still standing after that is amazing.

    theresanotheradulthood ritual where you go into the wild, collect enough vines, climb up some scaffolding they built, tie the now single vine (tied together) to their ankles/scaffolding, and jump off. their head must touch the ground. if the vine si too short, they fail the ritual. too long and they get horribly injured. each year they must go higher on the scaffolding

    "Some of the indigenous peoples of the area use Bullet Ants as part of this initiation-to-manhood ceremony that they do. You know the kind we mean, with us it`s like, a big party and your relatives give you money and everyone loves you and is so proud of you? Yeah with them, it`s these special leaf sleeves with hundreds of bullet ants woven into them, stingers-inwards. They put them on and are immediately stung to holy drating bejeezus by, and this is important, hundreds of Bullet Ants woven into the sleeves, stingers-inward.

    The goal is to leave them on for 10 minutes, after which their arms are stiff, useless lengths of twisting agony, their bodies wracked with uncontrollable spasms for days. And in order to be actually pass the ordeal and become a man, they have to do it 20 drating times."

    Even though I`d have done exactly the same thing, it`s always a little embarrassing to see a grown man cry like a child because of physical pain.

    And lol, "i`m sure there are worse forms of pain that the body can feel. like being burned alive or something. or having someone riverdance on your nuts"

    oh, i actually saw this on tv one night when nothing else was on, they use a mixture of herbs to put the ants to sleep, then they intwine them into the gloves

    its part of the "boy to manhood" ceremony in the tribe, which is also accompanied by having your tongue poked dozens of times by a razor sharp bone
